Toby Howard who chairs the UK Schools Computer Animation Competition sent me the details about Animation11; the 4th Annual UK Schools Computer Animation Competition which has now been launched...

"Animation11 is a not-for-profit competition run by The University of Manchester, designed to enthuse young people about Computer Science. For full details, and to register, please visit:

This years competition is open to all UK schoolchildren aged between 7 and 19 and the deadline for entries is 1 April 2011. Entrants can create their animations (maximum duration: 1 minute) using any of the following programs: Alice, Scratch, Flash, or Serif DrawPlus. There are great prizes, and the Animation Festival and Inspirational Computer Science Day will be held at Manchester Museum of Science and Industry on 1 July 2011.

I hope that those who love Wallace and Gromit and have aspiring Nick Parks to work with will want to enter this exciting competition.
